Q: My wife and I divorced three years ago after a long marriage because we both realised our feelings had changed and there was no point carrying on. As everything was agreed we did not instruct solicitors; we just paid the court fee and did everything else ourselves and then went our separate ways.

Q: I have a bicycle repair and hire business in a tourist area which I set up two years ago after being made redundant. It has gone really well and I am now thinking of branching out into building tailor-made bikes.

However, as I will be using photographs that won't necessarily represent the tailor made products that people will be buying, I am wondering whether I should include any special terms and conditions of sale on my website?
